about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Moss and Demuy Win LM Pairs
Another solution is for people to play according to the rules.
ACBL finally defines "collusive cheating"
Come to think of it, bidding has also become illegal unless your bids convey no information to your partner. You couldn’t make it up, but not only did someone make it up, everyone else agreed with it.
ACBL finally defines "collusive cheating"
The ACBL, like so many NBOs and other organisations, can't write to save its life. I don't know why they don't ask someone who can to do it for them.
ACBL finally defines "collusive cheating"
"An agreement made between contestants that encodes signals or exchanges information" Giving count has just become the gravest possible bridge offence.
What should East do?
Not sure that was altogether wise if 2 showed six. Mind you, apart from Simpson and Hallberg I don't think I ever met a pair who played 2 showing clubs in tournament bridge - might be quite effective to psyche it if you did play it.
What should East do?
Not sure about this. Does 2 show clubs even though 2 shows clubs, or is it a "transfer to clubs" that now shows something else?
A Modest Proposal
Didn't know "Mastschwein", so thanks for the information. I might have used "scheußlich" rather than "schrecklich", but it's a long while since I spoke any German.
A Modest Proposal
Well, then, it is my duty, as a pirate, to tell you that you are too tender-hearted. For instance, you make a point of never attacking a weaker party than yourselves, and when you attack a stronger party you invariably get thrashed. Frederic, [i]The Pirates of Penzance[/i]

Good to see Fred taking life easy in retirement.
A Modest Proposal
This has always seemed to me a complete non sequitur. Tennis isn't dying, but that's not because anyone can turn up and play against Roger Federer.
